Whitlock Cobra Pedestal Lube / Service

Greetings,

I have a Whitlock Cobra pedestal on my 1992 Beneteau First 310 (should be same as B311). I've located the Whitlock Cobra PDF manual, but it's extremely vague. I'm not currently having any problems with steering, but I'd like to take it apart to standard service levels, clean, inspect, and lube as appropriate for yearly maintenance.

Has anyone done this, or does anyone have a better how-to write up than what I've been able to locate? We race this boat frequently, so I like to have a better idea of what I'm getting into prior to opening things up.

Thanks in advance,
Chris

Re: Whitlock Cobra Pedestal Lube / Service

I have a Cobra which I did take apart about 5 years ago... clean, lubricate and re assemble. I have PDF manuals for it...

pay attention... someone's life depends on it
